These Art Nouveau baths were restored to their former glory in 2008 after decades of neglect. The tiles are an artwork in themselves and the baths are stunning. The impressive entrance hall sets the tone and inside, the main pool is lined with carved stone columns and a gallery sprouting with lush plants (note: you need a swimming cap to enter). The large thermal baths each have different temperatures, rising to 38 degrees and there’s also a sauna and steam room. The outdoor wave pool is open in the summer season only.
